Stitches West in Sacramento was great! It was our first show back after COVID, and I was pleasantly surprised. It wasn’t the biggest show Neighborhood Fiber Co.has ever done. But I think it was just right… the balance between the number of vendors and the number of shoppers. The Stitches crew did their jobs. It was a wonderful experience. And we made money at the show.

One of the things I love about the Stitches at Home experience, and why I recommend it to other crafters, is that the crew has done such an excellent job of creating the sense of community that is missing in a lot of online events. The morning coffee time, the stitches-together get-togethers, and the show and share times are all great ways to bring people together. Over time, I see many of the same faces in these social gatherings, and that spark of recognition builds that sense of belonging. I don’t feel like I’m just ‘taking a class’. I feel like I’m joining up with my friends.

Bravo to the team at Stitches West!  Everything from show communications to vaccination and masking policies leading up to the show were well thought of and carefully planned. The show was the perfect ratio of attendees to vendors and we had record sales. The new location in Sacramento was stellar. I could go on and on…this was an amazing entry back into in-person shows.  We are already making plans for 2023!

Stitches at Home is a perfect event to bring the knitters, crocheters, and craft lovers together—as we observe social distancing! Universal Yarn was proud to be a part of this wonderful event, and we were thrilled to see everyones’ excitement to attend. A MUST GO during the Covid Era!

I am doing many Bead shows and Gem and Minerals shows. After my first Stitches show, I wanted to do all their shows. It was the best! Show traffic was amazing! The promotors and other vendors were so nice and helpful.

I’m loving these Stitches Expo at Home events. They have been a fantastic way to build my business and increase my exposure to a wonderful audience.

When potential vendors and market place customers ask me about Stitches events I always tell them. “The party happens before the doors even open”. Fun, engaging, informative.

Front Range Bags has been an exhibitor at in-person Stitches for several years and developed a loyal customer base. Being a vendor at any Stitches event is a rewarding part of my work. The reputation of Stitches, as an event that attracts knowledgeable customers looking for new and unique items to assist them in their craft, makes these shows valuable places to be a vendor. In addition, XRX, Inc. markets their events to attract crafters of all skill levels. The Stitches staff is very supportive, available, friendly and helpful. The pandemic has changed everything, but having the virtual market place has been a way to stay in touch with customers as well as generate income and develop new customers. I try to exhibit in every virtual Market for Stitches Expo at Home events. Being a part of the Stitches Markets is very rewarding for my small business.

The folx at Stitches at Home made everything about our sponsorship a MAD breeze. Benjamin was patient and took his time walking us through zoom and answering any technical questions. The extra time and patience was so appreciated. Our virtual trunk show previewing our Josh Bennett x Madelinetosh collection was fantastic and a great way to promote the yarns and collection. Being able to connect in this unique forum with students and customers was a lot of fun and definitely turned into sales.

We appreciate how consistently organized and professional the Stitches staff are at every event. Our business has grown exponentially due in large part to the Stitches Events.

Thanks to the whole crew for continuing the virtual classes. I attended Stitches in Nashville, TN, but I can no longer travel because of health issues. Besides being able to take classes with instructors I never thought I would “meet,” doing so in the comfort of my own home means I can get up, move around and do what I need to for comfort. And, I’ve discovered I can spend just as much money on a virtual festival as an in-person one!


Colliervill, TN

We found a new audience with Stitches Expo at Home and will definitely keep supporting the event in the future!

I have been selling at Stitches West for seven years, and love the organization, love the people who staff it, and love the folks who attend. Everything about the show is great, including sales. I’m fortunate to be a part of the XRX circuit. Thank you everyone at XRX for making West such a great venue. In 2011, I went to East too, and it also was a good venue. I had a great time, with great and smart people attending. Sales justified the expense and effort of the trip (from the West Coast). Thank you again XRX!

The Stitches crew consistently delivers. The vendor market is diverse and the crowd is as happy as you’d expect from knitters on a four-day yarn bender.
